Until We Are Free contains some of the very best writing on the hottest issues facing the Black community in Canada. It describes the latest developments in Canadian Black activism, organizing efforts through the use of social media, Black-Indigenous alliances, and more. Quill and Quire explained, “Until We Are Free stands as a necessary work that is bound to become central to dialogues in the areas of social justice and global liberation.”
